What to Watch - Saturday

4pm - CBS - #5 LSU vs. #14 Tennessee, SEC Championship - It was rumored that Les Miles was going to be named the new coach at Michigan. That report was wrong - he's staying at LSU - and if his press conference today is any indication, Les is not happy right now. You won't like him when he's angry.

7:45pm - ESPN - Pittsburgh at #2 West Virginia - It is the 100th playing of the "Backyard Brawl," but with WVU 10-1 and playing for the a shot at the BCS Championship Game, and Pittsburgh coming in at 4-7, this will be a pretty one-sided brawl. But hey, at least you get to see Dave Wannstedt's half-mustache.

8pm - ABC - #1 Missouri vs. #9 Oklahoma, Big 12 Championship - If Missouri wins this game, then its on to the BCS Championship Game, and all is right with the world. If they lose though...hide the women and children.

11:30pm - ESPN2 - Washington at #11 Hawaii - If you're still up late enough for this one, check out the Warriors (11-0) and Colt Brennan in their final chance to show that they belong in a BCS game. The Huskies are 4-8, and have played six games against ranked opponents, but are just 98th in total defense. And Hawaii averages over 500 yards of total offense per game. Could get ugly.

Non-sports pick - 8pm-10pm - TNT - The Bourne Supremacy
- The second installment of the Bourne series. I think this is the one when Matt Damon's character has trouble remembering things, fights some people who are trying to kill him and does some cool spy stuff.
